Chapter 993: Untitled
Not long later, the leopard cubs also came running over, adding a hint of joy to this warm family.
It was a beautiful and perfect scene under the tree, and it was very pitiful and sad on the tree.
Muir’s heart also ached for Bai Qingqing, but he didn’t even have the right to show his face. He could only hold his breath and bear with it.
After having their fill of food and drinks, the beastmen left as if they didn’t have enough.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t keep things to herself. So, after she went home and woke up after an afternoon nap, she took out the green crystals that Muir had given her, stored them in an animal skin bag, and was planning to head out.
Curtis recently often felt sleepy, so he crawled into the hole to rest. The timing he shed his snakeskin this year was one month later than in previous years. It should be about time for him to shed his skin.
Winston went back to busy himself with stuff in the village and wasn’t at home now. Only Parker was laying in the courtyard that was covered with morning glory vines, enjoying the sun.
Seeing Bai Qingqing coming out, Parker drew his sluggishness back and quickly got up. Not saying a word, he carried Bai Qingqing up from the waist.
“Where are you going? Your feet haven’t recovered, you aren’t allowed to go out to play,” Parker said sternly.
Bai Qingqing felt bitter about it. It might feel good to act spoiled for a moment, but the recuperating process was a toil. She felt such regret!
“My feet are almost fine now. Really!” Bai Qingqing raised three fingers and swore.
Parker jolted her, carrying her with one arm and freeing the other to pinch the layer of callus on her feet, saying firmly, “No!”
“Alright then, you can carry me over on your back.” Bai Qingqing hadn’t wanted to disturb Parker’s rest. Since he was unwilling to yield, she wasn’t going to stand on ceremony.
Parker felt happy instead, carrying her and heading out. “Where are you going?”
“To look for Muir.” Bai Qingqing sounded natural.
Parker suddenly stopped in his tracks. Bai Qingqing felt that her words sounded a little intimate. She raised the animal skin bag she was holding and waved it. “These are Muir’s green crystals. He gave them to me when he gave you the transparent crystals the other time. I’m going to return these to him.”
The crystals released crisp jingling sounds in the bag. Parker’s ears were very sharp, and he could tell that there were a lot of them inside.
At the thought of how he had nothing, but Muir had so many good things to get into Qingqing’s good books, he felt really uncomfortable.
The debt that he had postponed paying back because of Saint Zachary rose in his heart again.
He was going to wait for these few days. When the heavy rainy season arrived, Saint Zachary wouldn’t come looking for trouble then. He could go out then.
At the thought of this, Parker hugged his mate tighter, showing a hint of unwillingness to part with her.
He continued to walk forward while Bai Qingqing turned back and looked toward the stone castle, saying, “An’an.”
Parker didn’t stop in his tracks. He let out a howl, and three young leopards came running over quickly.
“Go back and take care of An’an,” Parker instructed.
The leopard cubs replied to him and ran into the stone castle playfully.
Parker carried Bai Qingqing and moved quickly, arriving at the tree hole. Before he made a sound, Muir jumped out from the tree hole.
What sharp senses.
Parker stopped in his tracts, drew out the animal skin bag from Bai Qingqing’s hand, and hurled it at him. Muir caught it out of reflex.
After hearing the crisp sounds, Muir quickly understood what was in the bag. He immediately wanted to give them to Bai Qingqing again.
Bai Qingqing secretly elbowed Parker for being so arrogant. She had no choice but to put on a gentle smile and say, “These are your green crystals. They’re too precious, so I can’t accept them. Keep them quickly.”
Muir’s foot that had just raised landed back onto the spot, feeling bitter inside. He grabbed onto the bag loosely, pursing his lips tightly and not saying a word.
Muir’s exposed chest was covered in scars of varying length and depths…
